i have seen this when you install limewire in the past. i work at circuit city (firedog) and i see a lot of virus'/spyware come through. but this one can be a pain the rear end to remove.

we get many callouts & pc's in our shop for cleanups of this antivirus2008/2009 rubbish.

best removal tool ive found is running combofix in safe mode

most antivirus/spyware apps wont protect against it with standard definitions, as numerous variants are released daily.. (something like nod32's heuristics may well detect even new ones)

one customer we had actually registered for the spftware, which cost him £84, then £20 every 30mins was taken out of his account, until barclaycard put a block on his card.
